The sacred Amarnath yatra is an annual event falling in the month of Shravan according to Hindu calendar which coincides with the month of June-July. The natural Swayambhu lingam of Lord Shiva or Baba amaranth is made out of ice stalagmite and the name is chanted all through the difficult terrain of Himalayas as devotees snake their way through for Darshan cave at a height of 14,000ft. The air is filled with slogan ‘Jay Bhole’. The common notion is that darshan of Shiva is enough to get Mokesh after life. There are several stories about the discovery of the cave in Hindu text.
The antiquity of the place is gauged from the fact that people of the region worshipped Lord Shiva from the time of Mohajudaro and Harappa. It was believed over the centuries that Lord Shiva lived at three different places namely Kailash Parvat, lohit Giri, as well as Muzwan Parvat.
Shrine board in present times looks after the arrangements of the Yatra. Registration for valid permit for every devotee for the yatra is necessary. It can be done online through specified banks and post offices. There are paid eating joints on the way and at some base camps bhandaras or free meal facility is offered by some organizations. Base camps also has accommodation, medical facilities, control rooms that have connectivity with MET department for weather update. At the onset of the journey devotees are given free accident insurance cover for safety. The journey is undertaken partly by foot or all through the way by horse ride. Palanquins and porters are available on payment. Satellite connected telephone booths are spaced out all through the journey.
It is in the interest of the pilgrim to carry identity proof, address of some near and dear one with contact number, money winter clothing, water eatable and medicines.
